Somebody at Safeway Gas Rewards has been hanging out on the miles & points forums lately. It’s great enough that you can earn gas rewards and double miles with certain credit cards. Now Safeway is sweetening the deal with 4x Gas Rewards Points per $1 on gift card purchases.
If you’re a Safeway shopper, use your Amex Gold or Hilton to buy Safeway giftcards. This way you’re earning your usual 2 points per $1 on grocery store purchases, while earning 4 times the number of Gas Rewards points you would normally earn.
If your local Safeway store lets you buy the elusive $1,000 REloadit cards with a credit card, you’re golden.
For all other giftcards, I’d continue buying them at office supply stores to maximize the Ink card’s 5 point category.
Rewards can be redeemed at Chevron gas stations, though some folks on the east coast can redeem them at Exxon stations.
